Introduction to Colour and Collage Artist Studio

Collage has laid the groundwork for our cut and paste digital present day and remains popular as an active engagement visual medium across all age groups and cultures. Creative engagement with hands on collage activities helps foster an open-minded and liberating approach to colour and expression in art and design. In this introduction to the popular term classes we explore the visual language of colour and collage. This introduction includes the presentation of inspiring ideas, continue with art making by hand, and conclude with critique, reflection and discussion.
